Halloween Card

One of my hostess clubs made this cute little owl witch card.  I cased it from Patty Bennett.  She had made something very similar for her downline meeting.  I thought I would make a card using that owl.  My hostess club enjoyed making it!  It uses the Owl Punch, small oval punch and the bird wing from the X-Large Bird punch.  I did make some changes to the card because I did not have all the supplies Patty Bennett used, but I think it still turned out cute!

TThis is a matchbook type candy treat!  I made this for my Bunco group.  It holds a York Peppermint Patty.  

They are so simple to make!

Here is the inside of the matchbox candy holder.  I had to put it on its side to take the picture because it would not stand up without falling over.  I did use last years SU Designer Series Paper, but it worked!

One of my hostess groups made this cute little box.  We made this little box using the top note die on the front and back.  It was very easy to make.  

You cut out 2 piece of crumb cake using the top note die.  Then you just stamp leaves using cajun craze, old olive and chocolate chip ink pads.  I also used the pumpkin and leave from the sizzix dies.  I stamped on the leaves to give them a textured look.

Here is a side view of the box.  

This is the inside view of the box.  It is a half of a piece of crumb cake cardstock.  So it's 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 1" all the way around then turn it on the 8 1/2 side and score it at 3 3/4 and 4 3/4.  Cut for the tabs and glue together.  Let me see if I can get a picture of the way I cut and scored it.  
Hope you can read the dimensions and  writing on this.  If I get a close up pic you can't see the whole box.  I scored 1" all around (red lines) and 3 3/4 and  4 3/4 where the green lines are. Can you see where the cut lines are?  Hope you can see this and understand it.  Enjoy!!

Now here are two of my favorite things that I have been playing with.  One is the Itty Bitty Sizzix Box that I have used on a couple of  previous post AND the Wicked Cool stamp set.  Can it get much better than this??  Two of my favorite things on one project!!  Score!!  I sure hope yall are enjoying this little box as much as I am.  

Here are a few more pics of the same box.
This is like a side view so you can see it opened a little.  I have to get my lighting a little better, but I'm trying!!

Wicked Cool

This is a little 3x3 card that I made using the Wicked Cool stamp set #120600.  

My friend and downline Darnell let me borrow this set.  I don't think she has even had a chance to use it.  I have made a few things with it and she waits patiently while I play with her stamp set!!

Christmas Gift Box

One of my hostess clubs made this box last Saturday.  We  used the  Bitty box die from Sizzix #115967.  This box has become on of my favorite boxes to make.  I have made several of them using different themes, like birthday, Halloween and this one Christmas.  They are cute enough to give as gifts or favors, but not too small to put small pieces of candy in.  Sometimes boxes are so big that it takes alot of candy.  This box to me, is just a perfect size!!

 Here is another view of the box.  I also used the Candy Cane paper from our new Holiday Mini Catalog.  This new mini is the best!!  You will want everything in it.  I had to contain myself and only buy a few things....this month!!  I know I will be buying more!!
  Here is one more view of the box opened.  Love the die because it cuts and scores this box.  It is so simple to make and takes very little glue to put it together.

Spooky Candy Holder

Here's a cute little candy holder that I cased from Kimberly's blogI did not have all the accessories that she used, so I kind of did my own thing.  I used the Wicked Cool stamp set.  For the background paper I used Cajun Craze and the circle from Pick a Petal and stamped with stazon.  
Here's a side view.  You can place a piece of candy inside, I had just run out of candy.  I used the the two tags sizzix die #115954.

Birthday card

Here is a cute birthday card that I made.  I used the circle from Pick a Petal to make the dots and the large scallop circle from the Sizzix die to go around the circle that is from the Sizzix die also.  The candles are just strips of DSP paper and the flame is from the Two Step Bird Extra Large Punch.  This card also uses 1/2" Stiched Poly Ribbon in Poppy Parade and the Stamp set Birthday Bliss.  I really had fun making this whimsical card.

Elements of Style

This is a cute little 3x3 card that I made using Basic black, Rose Red and Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used the Beautiful Butterflies bigz die from Sizzix #114507 and stamped the Elements of style on the butterfly and then SU markers to color it in.  I also used the Elements of Style Stamp set # 120045 around the card and the saying from that set.  I added Basic Black 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon # 115615 on the side.  I also used the color spritzer tool #107066 to add the little dots...since we no longer have itty bittys we have to use something and this tool is perfect for adding just what you need to fill in those empty spaces!!
